59. Even the mean returns for short strangles were positive in six years (1996, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2008, and 2009).
60. Of these, straddles and strangles tend to have the largest gamma and vega values and therefore the greatest risk.
61. Just as with Strangles, Long Guts trades are trendish strategies and Short Guts trades are range bound strategies.
62. As with all option strategies, Straddles and Strangles behave much differently depending on their expiration date.
63. The downward trend in profitability of long strangles was not as pronounced as that of the long straddles, however.
64. I then take that guesstimate and analyze a handful of delta-neutral volatility plays like straddles and/or strangles.
65. Assuming that the selected strangles and straddles are delta neutral, the entire position will also be delta neutral.
66. On the other hand, the breadth of the strikes range influences the proportions of straddles and strangles significantly.
67. Bear markets, with increasing volatility, are usually more dangerous for Short Straddles and Strangles than bull markets.
68. We tested strangles with out-of-the-money options (more than 5% but less than 10% away from the underlying equity price).
69. Such strategies, straddles or strangles, involve simultaneously buying or short selling calls and puts of the same stock.
70. New traders sometimes assume that the purchase of straddles and strangles is not especially risky because the risk is limited.
71. They are exposed to the same forces as Straddles and Strangles, but the effect on one option is offset by the effect on the other.
72. Usually, when trading Straddles or Strangles, increased volatility is the option buyer’s friend and the option seller’s enemy.
73. Profits and losses of strangles depend on the changes of the underlying asset price in the same manner as described for straddles.
74. The risk of short strangles was in the left tail of earnings announcement returns: When there were losing trades, they were painful.
75. Profits and losses of strangles depend on the changes of the underlying asset price in the same manner as was described for straddles.
76. Instead, the profit-ability of straddles and strangles depends on the degree or magnitude of price changes (not the direction per se).
77. So I have been opening Straddles and Strangles, three-weeks-out, over the past few weeks, and planned to close them out on sharp moves.
78. Sometimes traders call this trade an Iron Butterfly if it uses a Straddle in the middle and an Iron Condor only when both are Strangles.
79. The exercise price of the straddle will usually fall as close as possible to the midpoint between the exercise prices of the strangles.
80. Unfortunately, all unquestioning obedience, respect and worship of authority stunts, strangles, limits, and destroys the sense of wonder.
81. With straddles and strangles, we care about the absolute instead of signed earnings announcement returns because they are volatility trades.
82. When you buy out-of-the-money Strangles your primary risk is Theta decay, while you capture moves with intrinsic value and increasing Delta.
83. For example, unifying two short strangles having the call-to-put ratios of 3:1 and 2:3 leads to the creation of a portfolio with a 5:4 ratio.
84. Persistently positive median returns of short strangles suggest that more than 50% of the short strangles were profitable in all sample years.
85. This could consist of buying options: Calls for bulls, puts for bears and straddles or strangles (involving calls and puts) for those neutral.
86. Optionz Traderz: Yes, like we talked about earlier, some Straddles and Strangles perform almost identically, especially on very volatile stocks.
87. I’d be happy to explain Butterflies to you in detail, but it would probably be less confusing if we got through Straddles and Strangles first.
88. But a trader can avoid this complication by choosing strangles in the two different expiration months that have approximately the same vega values.
89. Selling deferred-month strangles with out-of-the-money strikes can hedge the risk of being long options near expiration and make the position cheaper.
90. Although there is no substitute for experience, most traders quickly learn an important rule: straddles and strangles are the riskiest of all spreads.
91. Strangles are less expensive, but it actually takes a bigger move in the underlying price to generate a profit than would be necessary with a Straddle.
92. Because it is extremely difficult to predict the direction of earnings announcement returns, we focus on the volatility trades (straddles and strangles).
93. You might do the same with strangles and you could vary the width of the strangles so that you did the trade for very little or no premium out of pocket.
94. Similarly, volatility collapse after earnings announcements is a main source of profits from shorting straddles and strangles around earnings announcements.
95. Short outright calls or puts, straddles and strangles, are always the wrong way, regarding market moves, keeping time and implied volatility constant.
96. Thus, 10 combinations are created for each stock: 4 straddles and 6 strangles (provided that Call strikes in a strangle are always higher than Put strikes).
97. Although both strangles have essentially the same P&L profile, in-the-money options tend to be less actively traded than their out-of-the-money counterparts.
98. The difference between these two strategies is that the maximum loss of long strangles and maximum profit of short strangles are lower than those of straddles.
99. Straddles, strangles, ratio spreads, and butterflies may change slightly because a change in interest rates or dividends will raise or lower the forward price.
100. For both long straddles and strangles, most of the profits came from the top 20% of earnings announcements with the highest absolute earnings announcement returns.
